is still existing today and it is striking to me this divide between the perception of michele obama among white women and black women. white women find it appalling she has given up her career to be the first lady. many of my black friends particularly of my generation think it is the most wonderful thing in the world, that he saves her down as it used to be called in the olden days, all women didn't have to be a spinster but in the context of a black man who loves you, this romantic overlay of it, that black women and so rarely seen as beautiful, as lovable, the idea that this symbolic dimension of what michele obama is, clearly adored so much more than all the other first ladies in this very spontaneous lovely way, there's a subtle difference between the way in which black women see her giving up her career that she could do that, and b.a. lady, she is not somebody who is working all the time and our history as we were called a time no matter what. to be able to give that to raise one's children and have one's mother also there is a little bit different, a little bit subtle but powerful

lady michelle obama and daughters, malia and sasha, received the christmas tree on friday, which arrived on a horse-drawn charge. it's from a farm in north carolina and will be displayed in the blue room. they have a head start on me. i'm notorious for putting up a tree on december 23rd. >> ours is december 26th. >> it stays up until like march. >> nice to see bo in that shot, too. did you see bo, the dog? >> just like the girls, he's huge. >> he's grown. >> alex, thank you. >>> the smoke is now clearing from the black friday fireworks which started earlier than ever, on thanksgiving night. millions of americans hit the malls in a mad dash to get their hands on hot holiday deals at rock-bottom prices. and abc's john schriffen found himself in the middle of the mayhem and joins us from kmart in new york city. i saw you tweeted, what a difference a day makes. >> reporter: it is so different here. i feel like i can come out of hiding right now because things have certainly calmed down. at least here at this kmart. now, the past two days, everything you can imagine has been flying of
four years ago in iowa. after first lady michelle obama spoke to a crowd he gave her a long embrace. meantime the boss bruce springsteen performed a song that captured the president's theme of moving the country forward. in his remarks the president said he has more work to do to deliver the home and change he campaigned on four years ago. >> oo we have made real progress the past four years. remember here tonight because we have more work to do. we are not done yet on this journey. we have got more roads to travel. as long as there was a single american who lost jobs an can't find one or work isn't done. >> the president told voters his reelection is out of his hands now. that is up to the american people to decide if he will serve four more years. they made campaign rallies making earlier stops in wisconsin and ohio key battle ground state before making his final closing argument in iowa. >> after all of the months of campaigning, after all of the rallies, after the millions of dollars of ads, it all comes down to you. it is out of my hands now. it is in yours. all of it depends o
, with some of the emotion as both candidates were wrapping up those speeches last night. michelle obama, i thought, as well, was, was emotional, more emotional certainly than i've heard her before, when she was talking to the crowd. let's play a little bit of that. >>> the auto industry was in crisis. this economy was losing 800,000 jobs a month. and a lot of folks were wondering whether we were headed for another great depression. do you hear me? that's what people were worrying about. and that is what barack faced on day one as president of the united states. >> how emotional has this last tour for the president and michelle obama been? >> it's been very emotional. and last night, when i watched some of that i found myself walking away from the television, i know michelle obama's family very well. her family roots, on her father's side, or right here in south carolina and georgetown county, which was a part of my congressional district, so i understand that emotion ap. so those emotions, you get wrapped up here and then you lay your heart out, and you know that you were not dealt a hand
is what our coverage looks like. michelle obama is campaigning in petersburg, virginia, today at virginia state university. tonight mitt romney and paul ryan will be joined by their wives on the campaign trail, in westchester, ohio. also joining them is condoleezza rice and senator john mccain. that is at 7:30 on c-span. the amount we have to create an environment that our small businesses can thrive. when we look at the uniqueness on the border different from the reform metered -- needed, we need comprehensive immigration reform. we have a work force problem because of our immigration system is broken. we cannot get workers to go back and forth. these problems create an impediment to commerce. we have to provide a workforce that can move back and forth easily, and now we cannot do that because of the impediments that are there by not having an effective immigration policy. that becomes an economic issue. >> some of the issues have to do with what was raised here with regard to be near the border, seasonal work that comes on, and being susceptible to a national trend when it comes to the
, many visits from michelle obama. jill biden then work with the reds in colorado springs. we have seen plenty of action this cycle. >> bill clinton could be coming to your state. an official says bill clinton is scheduled to campaign for the president today. in colorado. the president was supposed to be in colorado springs tuesday but cancelled due to the storm. guest: and we expect we will see, pending the outcome of the storm on the east coast, both candidates later in the week. governor mitt romney was here last week in the rally at but rocks that drew 9000 people. thousands were turned away. the following day, president obama held a rally in denver and drew crowds of up to 16,000. the governor this because deserve an amphitheater that has the capacity of 18,000. the president and his campaign were looking to go to boulder to hold a rally. they are try to turn out a lot of voters for the optics. >> president obama expected here at the university of colorado shortly. he is on the campaign trail today after spending the first part of the week dealing with relief efforts of hurricane s
, michelle obama, senior adviser valerie jarrett has put a far left agenda and will continue to do so. stuart: i don't think he needs to compromise. he got the political clout and moral authority. stuart: charles: he might have lost the popular vote. even though -- stuart: it was 50-48 popular vote. he won. charles: we still have florida. 5748 popular vote? very close. not overwhelming mandate to go out and do whatever he wants but the point i was going to ask, you talked about his legacy is his legacy more important as a president or as a hero to the left? if he becomes a lame-duck president early on because going over the fiscal cliff, i am still a hero to my core or does he care more about being a hero with respect to other presidents in history? >> i see him like woodrow wilson in his second term. woodrow wilson went out and stumped the country for the league of nations. i think barack obama is going to stomp the country for his agenda. i think he is going to have as much luck as woodrow wilson did which was zero. stuart: he is a hero to left.

letterman, michelle obama and her interviews -- jay leno, david letterman, michelle obama and her interviews. host: where do you get that figure? caller: it was a tv show at the end of september. this man was a guest, i do not remember his name. host: prediction time. give me the electoral college vote and popular vote. caller: i am afraid of obama, he has got too much dirty stuff behind him. but i hope that they make romney the president. host: we have this from joseph ramirez -- host: we have the extensive story this morning from the front page of "the washington post." here is the breakdown in congress. "voters seem likely to opt for the status quo." host: there is a look at the breakdown. a reminder, we will have live coverage of a mitt romney rally this afternoon in pennsylvania, and the president as he campaigns in florida. mark is joining us from homestead, florida. prediction time, who is going to win and why? caller, for the first time i went from democrat to independent and i voted republican. when i went to the polls that i was undecided on yesterday, right when i got in, i felt l
between michele obama and white women and black women. something she has given up her career to be the first lady. and many think it is the most wonderful thing in the world. the successful woman didn't have to be a spencer bachus actually in the context of a man that loves you -- there is a romantic overlay. they are so rarely seen as beautiful and lovable. but this symbolic dimension of what michele obama, she so clearly is adored in this lovely spontaneous way. i think there is a subtle difference in the way in which black women -- that she could give up her career and be a lady, but she is not someone who is working all the time. our history as has been we work all the time no matter what. and to be able to give that up and helping one's own children -- i think it's very powerful in terms of this function when we talk about marriage. >> okay, weird when ask you one last question before we open for a q&a. the question i want to pose is what is next. what's next? what is next for the obama administration. it can be a grassroots on the ground question. >> okay. we can talk a
, it's gametime. we don't get another chance tomorrow. >> and michelle obama's name -- make sure you vote. get people out to the polls. this is literally going down to the wire. >> further complicating things. in new jersey, they extended the voting deadline and you can vote online because of the storm damage. , wet of the votes ,w won't know when they are tallied. new jersey is not competitive. if it is close -- there may be a recount or legal challenges. i worry about a 50-50 country. people are really empassioned about the election. they may not see specificity in the next four years but i wonder, if it is close, people will get fired up. >> one side or the other will argue about legitimacy. it.oth sides -- you've seen and for seaside viewers -- there is the debate about if all the public polls are wrong, the think obama will win, the polls look better for him than mitt romney. a lot of conservatives say the polls are manipulated. i tried to find where the preponderance of the polls were wrong. this is not mean that you cannot have this unexplained and undetectable surge among the
the democratic national convention in charlotte, but michelle obama spent time there. this race is pretty interesting. when you look at some of the exit polling you're seeing the president do very well among women. i think it was 52% we had in the smaller samples of the state, exit polls there. and we're looking at church attendance, where mitt romney is doing a little better than the president. >> brown: but this was the question, stu, for the president, to hold this coalition, the expanding the vote he was able to do in 2008 nay place like north carolina. and as we were hearing from mark and david earlier, in virginia and other places. >> right. in north carolina, with 60%, he has a fighting chance. i think most of us thought he would be a slight underdog, winning by opinion 3% when he was the insurgent candidate, change candidate, it looked more difficult. but north carolina is really interesting. the president won it it last time. it's a close race now. yet, today, the-- voters in north carolina have elected a republican as governor, pat mccrorp. and two years ago, republicans sweeppe
-off between two formidable contenders with two distinctive styles. >> michelle obama wears h & m, things that the normal person could buy, even though the majority of the time she is dressed in high-end designer clothing. she still that has that relatable touch to her. >> ann romney typically favors more high end. >> ann romney dresses in a very refined, expensive looking way. she wears a lot of designer clothing, but she still has fun with her style. she mixes prints. she loves a bright red dress. >> while both women received high praise for their convention attire, they have also faced criticism for some of their wardrobe choices. michelle obama for not wearing an american designer to a state dinn last night and ann romney ruffled some feathers when she word this $900 bird print t-shirt earlier this year, but regardless of the highs and lows, it's not just about who wore what about you how these women will leave their mark. >> well, avril graham is executive fashion and beauty editor for "harper's bazaar." good morning to you. >> good morning. >> with all the stress of the campaign it'
for sure and michelle obama. >> michelle, i have never loved you more, i have never been prouder that watch the rest of america fall in love with you too, as our nation's first lady. [ cheers and applause ] >> bill: a great moment there. the president saying last night listen i have not maybe been the perfect president. he always says that, but i was listening to what you wanted me to do and i tried to do my best. >> obama: whether i earned our vote or not, i have listened to you. i have learned from you and you've made me a better president. >> bill: and just jump in here to the very final words. this is the president his last campaign event of his career. >> obama: we are and forever will be the united states of america and together with your help and god's grace, we will continue our journey forward you and remind the world just why it is that we live in the greatest nation on earth. thank you america. god bless you. [ cheers and applause ] >> bill: very great moment last night. peter, some important senate races, too. democrats had a good night in the u.s. senate. >> democrats had a gre
-elected if it happens. >> definitely. next to michelle obama, the most popular democrat in the country. nothing beats having a former president to affirm you. especially a guy like bill clinton who is a walking advertisement for good governance. people believe him on the economy. >> why is he doing it? why is he so fervored about it? >> you know, i think part of it is that his legacy is in a sense tied to barack obama's. because a lot of what he's saying is let's go back to the clinton economic plans or the clinton rates on taxes. there's an affirmation of him in barack obama getting re-elected. and of course they did bring their two political powerhouse families together with the hiring of hillary clinton into the cabinet of barack obama. if you want to take the most cynical view of it, if hillary clinton wants to run in 2016, what better way to set that up. >> wait. we've got some huge loyalty markers that are going to be able to called in on this deal. >> absolutely. >> look, i think president clinton not only has he done the job for president obama, but the work that he's doing for -- on the down
been traveling on the plane together with president obama. first lady michelle obama joining the president on the stage. the first primarily win in iowa was a huge moment when he was battling against hillary clinton the first time around. so a lot of memories in iowa. joined now by wendall goler in chicago. what is the president doing on this last period throughout the course of these hours as waits for the big decision tonight? >> reporter: he made a tradition of playing basketball with staffers and friends on election day which has to be less stressful than sitting around nervously monitoring the exit polls. candidates don't usually campaign on election day. and the president is coming close. he and the first lady doing satellite tv interviews from chicago with radio and television stations elsewhere in the country. the first couple got in about 12:17, a little after midnight after campaigning in wisconsin, iowa and ohio. the third day in a row they have been in ohio which most campaigns see as a make or break state. the race is so close former press secretary robert gibbs
after michelle obama spoke. he looked sad at that point. i can understand why. he had adoring crowds four years ago. he has a tough time now scaring up a decent-sized crowd. i think a lot of democrats are not in to him or his solutions or a faith that he needs to get done for america. they are not crazy presidental tern tiff for voting for romney but they are not into obama at this time. >> leslie they talk about how obama's pollster told him early on that hope and change could not be recycled in a country the way so many americans are, the unemployment rate and so on and they decided to go negative, they decided they had to quote, kill mitt romney. the theory of th is that president obama didn't really love doing that. he loved the hope and change but he knew he had to do what he had to do to get reelected. he's trying to change the message in the last few days to get more positive but a number of americans are wondering what happened. >> thank you dr. larson. when you have over 10,000 people at a rally in ohio i wouldn't say they were begging people to come. i wish i could get ten
-elected. >> reporter: he and first lady michelle obama rejoiced with the vice president and his wife and other friends and family. the president, giving a special thank you to the first lady. >> and i wouldn't be the man i am today without the woman who agreed to marry me 20 years ago. [ cheers and applause ] let me say this publicly. michelle, i have never loved you more. i have never been prouder to watch the rest of america fall in love with you, too, as our nation's first lady. >> reporter: the president tweeted to his supporters, we're all in this together. that's how we campaigned. and that's who we are. crowds rejoiced in times square. outside the white house. in chicago. but not so much at the headquarters for mitt romney in boston, where bystanders said, you could hear a pin drop, as the networks called the election for president obama. reports last night that governor romney was so confident in his victory, he had only written one speech beforehand, a victory speech. >> like so many of you, paul and i have left everything on the field. we have given our all to this campaign. [ cheers and app
for presidential campaigns in the future. >>> the words four more years coupled with a photo of barack and michelle obama embraced in a hug is the most retweeted post ever. the u.s. president tweeted just. and it's been retweeted half a million times. >> do you think he actually pushed the tweet button? >> twitter doesn't let you to that anymore which i found out when i tried to -- >> what do you mean? >> it only counts -- >> he it actually didn't -- >> oh, tweet it in the first place. no, they probably have a team of people. >> that's what i mean. >> so to say that he tweeted is not factually correct, is it. >> thank you for catching that. norm johnson is here to talk about just how as we were discussing, how candidates use social media. and to you you think the way in which obama used it helped his re-election? >> ross, first of all, i think it was his kids that tweeted it. that's the trick that i use. but i think it certainly helped. if you look at the power of word of mouth particularly for those that are undecided, that haven't decided which way they want to vote, social media is an incredibly
